# An Alternate to the Unified Distribution with Application to Breast Cancer Data

## ABSTRACT

The Unified (θ) distribution appeared in , and in this short note we introduce a variant of this distribution. Further, a member of this family is shown to be significant in cancer modeling.

## KEYWORDS

Bates distribution; Unified distribution; Cancer modeling

## THE UNIFIED (θ) DISTRIBUTION

For x ∊(0,1) , the PDF is given by Remark 3.1. For details on the derivation of this family, see 

## THE NEW FAMILY

Let X be Bates on (0, 1) , and denote its PDF as f x (x,n) and consider where k and ø are defined as in . Suppose Q=q, and consider =a+(b-a)J, where the random variable J has density q then So, the CDF of Y is By differentiation the PDF of Y is So, if ø=1, then our density becomes The class of all distributions with the above density is denoted A Unified (a, b, θ)

Remark 4.1. The families A Unified (a, b, θ) and Unified (θ) (of Section 1) coincide if and only if a=0 and b=1

## THE UNIFIED (θ) GENERATED FAMILY OF DISTRIBUTIONS

The A Unified(a, b, θ) generated family of distributions has CDF where 0 ≠θ ϵR, and K(x) is the CDF of some baseline distribution. Assuming the baseline distribution is Weibull with the following CDF for x, g, h>0, then from the integral we have the following

Proposition 5.1. The CDF of the A Unified (0, 1, θ) Weibull family is given by where x, g, h>0 and 0 ≠ ϵR
Obviously, the PDF can be obtained by differentiation. We write H AUW g h  (θ, , ), if H is a A Unified (a, b, θ) Weibull random variable. The family in the above Proposition is a good fit to real life data as shown below. The MLE estimates are obtained using the software MATHEMATICA (Figure 1) .

## CONCLUDING REMARKS

In the present paper we introduced an alternate to the Unified distribution appearing in , and showed the Unified distribution is good in fitting real life data.
